  • was a fun museum with different levels of involvement. definitely kid friendly. There are interactive areas that show facts and information about oil drilling and others sea adventures appropriate for all ages not just kids (im 25 and partner 26 and we still enjoyed it) tickets allow access to real ships/boats that are in the harbor outside.
  • I often visit this museum with my family at least a few times during the year for different exhibitions and always find something interesting for both adults and kids. Kids can also get on board ships parked outside the museum. Indeed, it's a very nice museum for families to visit any time of the year!
